As many here may know I have a L-5 herniation. I ran out of my pain meds early this month so I just saw my PCP. I was taking 30mg's 3x a day of oxycontin and 10/325 of oxycodone for B/T pain twice a day. The Dr just increased these meds to 40mg OC 3 x's and 4 oxycodone 3x's a day......do u all think these dose's are too much, not enuff? I'm unsure, i dont like taking all these pills. BUt anyway he wanted to give my either Lyrica or cymbalta or Neurontin cuz I have nerve daamgae issues from a previous surgery. i told him i didnt want all that stuff and i thought i read somewhere that neurontin had some scary side effects....does anybody know anything about this?Also, I'm scheduled for ESI's on 4-14....worried about that too and doubt it will help....comments?
